10th of february 6 anarchists/anti-militarists blockaded the entrance of
Aeroflot office in Helsinki, in response to international call to attack
companies around Russian oligarch Boris Berezovski who is one of the main
actors behind the recent bloody war in Chechnya. Action was really typical
Finnish one: it was raining and snowing wet snow, and trespassers did not
cared a lot. Aeroflot staff locked the office and went home from the
backdoor, instead of demanding the police to come. After half of an hour,
few press people who bothered to come get pissed and called to police
station nearby, "to get some action". Police promised to come, which was a
lie. Soon press left, but activists stayed one hour more, after which they
went home - victorious. Next day human rights organisations had a
demonstration for Andrei Babitsky.

In 16th of february, some 40 anarchists/anti-militarists marched to support
anarchist total objector Pauli Jyrkinewsky, who was imprisoned in the same
day, and to demand amnesty for him and to all the other 17 total objectors
(3 of whom anarchists) currently imprisoned. Parade was told to include some
horn music.
